Often times radical ethno-nationalist , specially in Tigray and Oromo region, employ a strategy of framing resistance to existing ethnic federalism as a resistance to federal form of government.

Lidetu Ayalew refutes it pointing out that it is actually misrepresented. He says, there is no an organized political party, rightly so, that is advocating for a unitary government nor advocating for one culture and one language.
